Contemporary Exmoor Sanctuary

Contemporary Exmoor Sanctuary

Combe Martin, Ilfracombe, Devon, UK

Coming soon...

Star-crossed lovers from the very beginning, the owners of this contemporary retreat first met on this very site way back when they were children. Since such lazy days together in the Devon sunshine, both led a life of far-flung travel and touring bands before coming back to the edge of Exmoor to realise their dreams of building a home together. Just 15 minutes from Ilfracombe and with a hot tub settled under the stars, this luxury self-catering home is a modern, yet welcoming escape for groups, filled to the brim with entangled stories and laughter.

Built with soul and constructed from local, Devon materials, this luxury self-catering home close to the North Devon coast has been thoughtfully designed to feel both warm and as though its bright living spaces are a continuation of the rural landscape outside. Handed down through the family, the rolling field in which the house now sits was tended by the owner’s mother to grow fruit and vegetables; the large beech tree in the corner planted by the hands of his father. Beneath the cedar cladding and zinc roof is a collection of the old-meets-new, with a mixture of furnishings and art collected through nothing other than tasteful enjoyment. Outside, a large garden with oodles of space for running around, fire pit and hot tub ensure all ages will be more than happy here.

With the high, craggy cliffs of the North Devon coast just minutes away and the wild expanse of Exmoor National Park grazing the doorstep, adventurers will be in their element. Hiking trails, secret wild swimming spots and reliable surf breaks are abundant, as are pretty seaside villages and quaint thatched tearooms overflowing with artisan coffees and slabs of cake large enough for two, but too delicious to share. With four double bedrooms accommodating up to eight guests over two floors, this modern dwelling is perfectly placed for dreamy summer holidays with the best of both worlds; quiet, rural bliss outside every floor-to-ceiling window, or the buzz of Ilfracombe's electric, beachy atmosphere close-by.
